From the foreword: This collection of essays surveys and analyzes the most important aspects of China’s naval modernization. The book’s 10 chapters represent papers delivered at a 2007 conference, but have been updated and, most importantly, framed by expertly written introductory and concluding chapters that bring the book firmly into the century’s second decade.
Topics: Military policy -- China, Naval art and science -- China, Sea power -- China

As a continuation of the basic overview lectures presented in the first volume, it rounds out those lectures on strategy in a theater of military action. While not a homogenous series, this volume presents valuable data in three...

Until the demise of the USSR, the Soviets consistently viewed history as a process of dialectical change in nature and society. The discipline of history was a science, which, in their view, 'studies the development of human society as a single natural process, regular in all of its great variety and contradictions.' This process has often produced war, a socio-political phenomenon, which they have characterized as a continuation of politics by violent means. Anticipating the possibility of...
